Upcoming Shows

Thank you for your interest in our upcoming art fairs! As Nishi is accepted into shows for the spring, summer, and fall, this page will be updated accordingly. So make sure to check back regularly for new information!

Nishi is busy preparing a wide variety of handmade pottery to display and sell. This includes his unique style of dishes and mugs, Western- and Japanese-style teapots, teacups, bowls, platters, vases (including the cute bud vases he is quickly becoming famous for), sake pitchers and cups.
